Validating identity unable to find a certificate
To fix, you go into the properties page of your wireless connection, go to "Wireless Networks" tab and then to Properties of the chosen wireless network you are trying to connect to.
Then go to "authentification" tab and untick the box saying "Enable IEEE802.1x to the availiable network" and that should solve your problem Graham UKRight, Graham's solution worked for me.
To resolve i went to the manufacturer site and downloaded the latest drivers for the wireless card, and any other drivers i could. I had the same problem with a toshiba satellite p30 running windows xp pro sp3 with an atheros 5004x wireless card.
I tried every solution I could find on the net but nothing worked.
I had been able to connect previously, but the connection would always indicate that it was validating.
However, it didnt work, until I disconnected, turned the power off my Wi Fi, unchecked the tab in the authenticate dialog box, clicked ok, then switched the Wi Fi power back on, and reconnected.

Vince I did not find the above fix for the problem to completely fix the problem.This seemed to work for me after I disconnected from my router and reconnected again.However, you may have to go into "view wireless networks", and then choose "change order of preferred networks" in left corner of screen.- If still unable to connect, restart your machine, and try again.- If still doesn't work, read the manual until you understand what is router is all about. : DRegards, Syed Hi, a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
